Re: 4K is just a gimmick like 3D and curved TV's ?

4K files are HUGE.

They can't be just streamed, or sold on blu-ray discs, you also need a massive PC to process it...think about it....

I think 4K may have a long term future but for now only wealthy early adopters will buy into it.

From the BBC:

"We are years away from being able to make and transmit in 4K, yet it matters far more than 3D ever did: it enables manufacturers to focus on making bigger, better, normal TVs," Harrison says.

So it has a future..... in a few years.....
